Backpacking, hiking, skiing, camping, and sailing are just a few of the ways we can experience the outdoors by getting away from it all. Though this is where some of the truest beauty lies, it’s very often disconnected to the rest of the world. What makes it so alluring can also be dangerous if communication lines are unavailable or unreliable.
Satellite phones and wi-fi hotspots are available to rent or purchase and allow us to venture into uncharted territory while still being able to contact help in the event of an emergency, or just to stay in touch with home.
Beyond that, family and friends know they can still contact you when needed. It is reassuring to know someone is just a phone call away if/when the need arises. Satellite phones allow both inbound and outbound calls and text messaging.
Some devices, such as the Iridium Go! and Thuraya SatSleeve+ have the ability to link to your normal smart phone and therefore provide data. Additionally, a satellite phone can be used for GPS tracking as well as sending SOS messages for emergency situations.
Larger projects - static and portable satellite solutions
We also work on much larger projects, for personal use, where we provide complex networks linking radios, mobile phones and satellite networks together to provide integrated remote communication solutions.
